Early Childhood Center Director, Randee Norwood
Randee Norwood has been the director of the Beth Shir Shalom Early Childhood Center (ECC) since 2014. Ms. Norwood is an award-winning early childhood professional with 29 years of experience at Stephen S. Wise ECC. She leads a team of teachers who have been devoted for many years to child-centered preschool programming and our Reggio Emelia-inspired program.
Ms. Norwood has made her career in supporting and inspiring children and families. She says with great love, “Children’s creativity and motivation for joy and learning continue to surprise and inspire me and I consider it a privilege to join them on their journey at Beth Shir Shalom.”
Because her joy for teaching extends beyond the classroom, she advocates for the Outdoor Classroom Project as part of their executive steering committee. This experience allows Ms. Norwood to bring new techniques to not only the staff and parents of Beth Shir Shalom, but early childhood centers throughout Los Angeles and Santa Barbara Counties.
